Economic Evaluation for Public Health Preparedness and Response

GAP Solutions supports the development and use of economic methods to improve decision-making and communication, particularly in regards to public health preparedness and response. At the Offices of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response within the Department of Health and Human Services, we established processes and skills to better understand the value and impact of investments made in disaster preparedness. Expertise and solutions delivered include:

  • Development of standardized economic evaluation methods to measure the cost-effectiveness of various medical interventions and programs
  • Case studies aimed at measuring return-on-investment of acquisitions and programs
  • Analyzing medical claims data to gather empirical evidence policies aimed at improving clinical and economic outcomes surrounding disaster readiness
